"outfront," the obama slide. a brand new poll of likely voters showing mitt romney out ahead and leading the president 49-45%. and look at this. since last month, the president is down six percentage points in that same poll. now, it is just one poll, but take a closer look at the numbers and there may be some pretty red flags out there for the incumbent. voters say romney did a better job at the debate on wednesday night. 66 to 20%. and that has helped change some voters views of governor romney. he's now polled even with obama among voters who see him as a quote strong leader. just last month, romney was trailing in that category, trailing, not just by a little. by 13 points, in fact. another contributing factor to obama's slide, women. this might be a surprise, but women are now evenly divided in their support of the two candidates. take a look at your screen. just last month, obama led romney by 18 points among women, so that is big. and keep in mind obama won this voting block by 13 points in 2008, so it's getting even bigger. another contributing factor to romney's big gain

pughel poll which shows romney leading obama. you can see also barely outside the margin of error. in that same poll, the president's 18-point lead among women disappeared. he's now running even with romney. so who is winning this vital war over middle class tax cuts? rah ham salon joins us and john avlon, senior political columnist at "newsweek" and "the daily beast." this debate over $5 trillion and what you're trying to do and on the backs of the middle class, this isn't just about a number and who is using a number specifically in what way. it goes to the heart of whether the president is going to win. >> in 2008, barack obama did something incredibly brilliant. he actually managed to outflank the republicans on taxes, which was their biggest, most potent issue for literally decades, by saying, hey, if you're middle class, you're going to get a tax cut, and it's only the small number of folks who will get anything like a tax increase and that turned out to be a very successful political message. and now mitt romney is countering that. one thing that's fascinating is this. mitt rom

positive polls, he may be felt by fire. a major supporter campaigning for romney this week, feels so strongly that he had to speak out. rand paul of kentucky, senator, always good to see you and i appreciate you're taking the time. you wrote an op-ed that appeared on cnn.com and the headline was romney's wrong on the middle east, comma, defense spening. here's a little of what you're so upset about. mitt romney said it today. >> in a place like syria for instance, we should through our partners in the region, work to identify dissidents within syria that are responsible people, try to bring them together, provide weaponing and funding and they can promote their agenda. >> provide funding and weapons for them so they can defend their agenda. >> i have two questions. number one, when we get involved with war or providing weapons, it needs to go before congress. the constitution says that is the prerogative of the legislatures. it's difficult to know who friend and foe are. over a decade now in afghanistan. we have trouble telling friend from foe. the people we're training, the afgh afg

, a new cnn poll of polls has mitt romney leading president obama by one percentage point. now, that comes out to 48-47 and obviously, well within the margin of error, so it's a dead heat. but it's a significant reversal from a month ago when president obama was leading 49-46. you get the point. when you add it up, that's where you get the the margin. other polls show a dead heat. many of them have the president in the leading spot. "outfront" tonight, david frum, former speech wroiter for george bush -- and mark mckinnon is back with us. great to see you. let me start with you, david. we're starting to see republicans rally around mitt romney. latest poll i think is a good indicator. 62% of romney supporters say we're excited about this guy. it was 48% before the convention. what's behind that shift? >> well, i think it would be a mistake to say they're enthusiastic about him and therefore, they're going to vote for thim. they're going to vote for him, so they have no choice but to become enthusiastic. we are seeing a rallying of bases on both sides. i see a race of tremendous stabi
